Election Pledge 6 : Continuing our active support for the residents in Heath & Birchgrove in whatever way we can.
We know that residents need to feel confident that when they come to us with an issue, that we shall listen & help them to solve the problem. This can be anything from getting a bin emptied, or dealing with a complex housing or care issue.
Fenella said ‘It has been my privilege to have helped residents within the Ward with whatever issue they have brought with them to talk about. Listening to residents, understanding their situations, and then helping to get things sorted out, is key to being a councillor. And that is what we shall continue to do’.
Steve added ‘We have a strong belief that residents need to be kept informed of what we’re doing, and alerting them to issues that may affect them such as planning applications or road changes. We like to consult with residents to hear their point of view so that we can support them & represent them. We produce regular newsletters, and street letters keeping residents in touch’.
Jane commented ‘Being a councillor means being alert to what is happening in the area & making sure that we are pro-active. Whether that is litterpicking, reporting potholes or getting casework done promptly, it’s about remembering that people come before politics. We care about our Ward; we care about our residents.’
Fenella, Steve, & Jane will continue to give their active support to residents in Heath & Birchgrove in whatever way they can.
